Streptococcus pneumoniae is a significant cause of severe disease (including meningitis and pneumonia) with the greatest burden in children less than 5 years and in adults over 50 years of age. Invasive pneumococcal disease is the most serious manifestation of the infection, with High mortality and lifelong debilitation for many of the children who survive. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 1 million children <5 years of age die annually from pneumococcal disease, making it the number one cause of vaccine preventable death.Laureate 2011 Previous
